our debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies. >> yes, we would. if washington were serious. the real president obama looked serious but he isn't. he ignores what he was right to be upset about just 7 years ago. congressional record shows that senator obama said this about the bush administration. it took 42 presidents 224 years to run up only one trillion of foreign held debt. this administration did more than that in just five years. he was right the bush administration did that. but now obama's administration has done much worse. they have run up another 6 trillion in debt. how is that possible when just a few years ago barack obama believed this. >> america has a debt problem. therefore tends to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. >> this year president obama demands congress raise the debt

1:04pm
saving medical devices. >> congressman ryan possibly a presidential contender in 2016 says republicans should be prepared for the president to try to quote de legitimize them. but he urged them to quote be smart. >> if we want to promote conservativism we need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we have to jeekt the president's proposal. that time might come more than once. sometimes we have to make them better. the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. >> the white house says the president wants both parties to come together and act for the good of the country. press secretary jay carney said the president believed that quote we need to capri miss not be absolutists but agree the need to act on behalf of the american people should compel us to make reasonable compromise while we stick to our principle. that's the approach he has taken
1:05pm
since the end of the white house and approach he will take in the second tex. ryan says he doesn't think republicans are in the political wilderness since they control the house and most state legislatures but they need to broaden their appeal. >> mol knee henneberg. thank you very much. >> the second amendment taking center stage activists making their voices heard in a pair of opposing rallies. lawmakers religious leaders and hollywood stars addressed gun control supporters outside of the capital building. nearby a smaller event billed as the rally against gun extraction brought out those fighting to stop tougher firearms laws. >> extreme winter weather gripping much of the country this weekend as arctic air stretches from the midwest to the northeast. the bone chilling weather was actually more than just uncomfortable.

1:08pm
faster than they normally would. >> deep freeze began last weekend before spreading east. when factoring in windchills temperatures plummeted to negative 50 degrees. in some parts of the upper midwest and northern new england. you know this arctic air can be deadly for our public population. shelters are popping up all over the region dealing with this arctic air. and the ones already in place are adding beds. the good piece of news out of all of this is next week many forces dealing with arctic air are going to be seeing relief. >> that is something to look forward to. thank you very much anna. appreciate it. justin joins us from accu-weather with more. hopefully you have good news for us. >> buckle up it will be a busy

1:11pm
fundraiser next month. he is the third long time senator to announce retirement recently. along with rockefeller and chambliss. >> the spotlight in the weekly address. south dakota senator talking about getting finances under control. the need to change government spending habits. >> washing ton is addicted oto spending your money. over the past four years our country added 6 trillion to the national debt. at $16.4 trillion the total debt is larger than our entire economy. we can't add a trillion dollars to the debt every year as we have for the past four years. a major credit rating agency has already downgraded our nation's credit once. if we don't start making real progress on spending freerms more downgrades are likely in the future.
1:12pm
>> he went on to say the first priority in congress every year should be coming up with a spending plan. he admits it can be tough at times. but says families have to come up with a budget for their household needs and lawmakers should be able to do the same thing. meanwhile president obama using his weekly address to boost support for hid nominee for top government positions. some of them have been getting push backs from capitol hill. who the president tapped to be the next secretary of defense. peter doocy has more from washington. >> president obama's nominee to become the next secretary of state. john kerry was received very well in his confirmation hearing for democrat and republican. >> i commend his nomination to you without reservation. >> he will be a terrific bridge from the hill to the administration. >> senator kerry's support is not expected to dwindle.
1:13pm
he is very likely to become the next secretary of state. handy capping the odds for confirmation of president obama's other nominees for important decision is tricky. when i nominated him for 2011 i took action to appoint him on my own. >> that appointment expires at the end of this year. president obama renominated him this week. the senator was one of 45 senators opposing his nomination last year. he said until key structural changes are made to ensure accountability and transparency i will continue my opposition to any nominee for director. >> the national security advisor for john brennan to become cia director. chuck hagel to become defense secretary could be bumpy. both men have been making the
1:14pm
rounds on capitol hill trying to convince senators they are each capable of filling critical national security posts for the next four years. heather? >> peter doocy reporting from washington. thanks, peter. a major set back for president obama. a federal court of appeals ruled he violated the u.s. constitution when he sidestepped congress and used recess appointments to fill positions on the national labor relations board. whi white house press secretary jay carney said there is precedence for the president's actions. >> there are a lot of cases out there with different courts we respectfully but strongly disagree with the decision. it counters 150 years of precedence. >> let's bring in bob kusiak n managing editor.
1:15pm
>> evidences not in recess when he made his recess appointment. it was in pro ferm -- pro form precedence. if i simply declare by fiat that it is in recess it will be so. you can't do that you are violating the constitution. bit of an embarrassment from a former law professor. >> it is a tough blow. when the senate wasn't passing bills it was technically in session. the court found 3 to 0 that obama violated article two of the constitution. >> both republicans and democrats have done these type of recessed appointments. it goes down to what is a definition of a recess. if you go back to the constitution and that's what the judges did. they said 80 years after the constitution was ratified no president did a recess
1:16pm
appointment like obama did. these guys that were appointed no good. >> in fact the chief judge was especially critical of president obama saying that he was giving himself, and i will quote here, free reign to appoint his desired nominees any time he pleases whether that time be a weekend or lunch or even when the senate is in session and he is merely displeased with its interaction. this cannot be the law. well, bob, if this were the law the president would then have unchecked unfettered discretion and ability to name anybody to any post at any time whenever he wants. wouldn't that render the constitution advise and consent clause meaningless? >> well that's what republicans are saying this is a victory for the separation of powers clause. they are calling the nrb to step
1:17pm
down. the head of the consumer agency was nominated the same way. there is november pending lawsuit on that. this ruling suggests that it may be null and void. all of the decisions nrb has made hundreds of them could be voided. that is a problem with the consumer agency, too. this has to go supreme court. this has not been friendly to labor. this could be chaos in terms of how to pick up the pieces from this. >> to push that along the labor board only has one legal member and it needs a quorum of at least three to decide any cases. doesn't it also mean that everything that the nlrb has ruled on is invalid and we were talking about hundreds of decisions everything from collective bargaining agreements to the rights of workers to use social media which was the most recent decision.
1:18pm
>> all of those decisions could be thrown at. they have no choice. the cases may be combined and they have to weigh in. >> this is a head cake for the administration. >> they can follow that circuit court. bob good to see you. >> thanks. >> violence in celebrations following a judge's ruling in egypt. this the scene as deadly riots broke out in the city of where it all started after a judge sentenced 21 peep to the death penalty for their roles in a massive stalker riot last year. the military moved in to calm the crowds after rioterers tried to storm a prison housing the defendant. family members of those killed in the soccer stadium celebrated

1:20pm
feminist group. they are angry over the male domination of big business. they also set off pink flares and used body paint to straul the message s. they are protesting shirts as well. >> nearly. >> the u.s. sending f-16 fighter ne jets to egypt all part of a deal struck with stormer president must be bar reck. the n -- mubarek. morrissey says it is a sign of support for his regime. what message does this send and why didn't the obama administration pull the plug on all of this? oo it is so bad it could turn into a public health crisis. we have the lathes on new polls for the government to intervene. >> months after an nfl legend's heart wrenching suicide junior s seau's family saying the nfl ignored risks.
1:21pm
do they have a case? >> 911 emergency. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis

1:36pm
156.5 billion in sales last year. big company making big profits is apple slow down inevitable. is it something we should be concerned about and what does it mean for other american companies? >> the stock was trading around $700 a share and we were talking about whether this was going to be the next thousand dollar per share company. the answer then was highly unlikely. extremely profitable company but the idea that it was going to continue to grow at the phenomenal pace forever almost impossible. >> i took a look at what different analysts were saying i found it interesting. one analyst said if growth if continued at the same pace for another 5 years revenue would have reached $1.2 trillion for example. that's the size of the gross
1:37pm
domestic product. nothing to sneeze at. they are concerned apple is losing its ability to keep up with consumer trends or really get ahead of them. how can they do that? >> we had very, very smart analysts. it is about the projection of how fast this company can continue to grow how many i pads they can sell how many i pods and new products might be coming on the street and how fast can they grow their revenue. clearly at this point in the game apple has slowed down. they had a phenomenal quarter second best quarter in the entire history. $13 billion in profit but not at the paste analysts were expecti expecting. this company is maturing from a growth company to a value company. as such it is not able to continue to grow at the momentum. it will be a profitable well-known company but not as it did no the past. >> competitors seem to be growing largest competitors samsung reported mrof fitprofit
1:38pm
increasing in large part because of the galaxy phone. and cheaper smart phones. is that something apple should do? >> we talked about samsung three or four months ago. they had a bullseye on their back so they could sell the products at large margins. cheap competitors come into the market develop a better product at a lower cost. what they are doing is going after the lower end of the spectrum of these phones and mo more important the international market. not everybody can afford a 5, $600 phone. samsung they are taking market shares. >> apple has said they will not reduce lower products to pursue consumers interested at a low price point. >> that's their stand. >> i want to ask you about the
1:39pm
possible child labor concerns in chene gn china. how do you think that will effect the stock? >> they are one of the solid companies in trying to do things the right way. this is an area in terms of manufacturing they have gone a long way to try to do it the right way. there's always going to be a in the oyster. apple thought they had this problem solved they will get on top of it they will hammer it home they will make sure it doesn't happen in the future. they are going to pop up but it's how the company reacts. >> back in september now about 400. time to buy yes or no? >> it's amazing $700 everybody loves it. $400 nobody wants it. i think there's a really solid quality american company. might go a little lower until the market gets used to the fact it's not going to grow as fast but it has to be an attractive price range. >> we appreciate the being here.
1:40pm
a community is on edge after a local rape case makes national headlines. we will hear from residents. take a look at where that stands today. >> relatives of a legendary linebacker file a lawsuit against the nfl. the legal panel weighs in on the case surrounding junior seau's suicide which stunned the nation and left his family devastated. . [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what soup can do. with hand-layered pasta, tomatoes, and real mozzarella cheese. but what makes us even prouder... is what our real dinners can do for your family. stouffer's. let's fix dinner. a body at rest tends to stay at rest...
1:41pm
while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers,
1:42pm
which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit celebrex.com and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.
1:43pm
1:44pm
>> the nfl is facing a wrongful death lawsuit from the family of a legendary linebacker junior seau. he killed himself last year. tests later reveal he suffered from a brain disease cte caused by repeated head injuries. the family blamed the league and issued a statement to explain why they filed the suit. let's bring in our legal panel.
1:45pm
dick de zigler joins us. vicky, football is a game in which they are vl tarrylly participating. it can be violent with collisions. players know that. they willingly engage in tackling and in the law isn't that called assumption of the risk? doesn't it insulate the nfl from liability? >> that's the first thing i would bring up. nobody is forcing them to go on the field. obviously it is mortal combat where you are having physical contact. that's the first argument. second one is who is con trib toerlly neglect? if junior seau had any medical problems he didn't go. they are there during practices to make sure. >> there's an even bigger point
1:46pm
of contributor renegligence. give he loved the physicality of the game. he enjoyed tackling opposing players. i am not sure you can blame the nfl for that. he is quoted as saying this, if i feel some dizziness, i know that guy the opposing player is feeling double that. there is no such thing as a safe tackle. concussions happen. unless you stop the game entirely you are going to have head injuries aren't you? >> junior is one of the greatest. i am a lifetime charger fan. i follow him forever. you cannot assume the risk for things you don't know about. he assumed the risk for concussions headaches broken bones but he did not assume the risk for chronic traumatic enself lop the. >> it is a phenomenon people have known about and doctors
1:47pm
have known about for decades. repeated blows to the head are going to cause problems long-term. >> not alzheimer's like symptoms this disease has. here's the problem the nfl has. in 94 they created a commission to look into this. they said yeah there's problems but the multiple concussions aren't like boxes where it is very serious and causes long-term injuries. then in 99 five years later they celted with three different players only one of whom we know. mike webster the former steelers great. one doctor testified in that case his brain injuries were similar to someone who had been in 25,000 car accidents. >> there's a problem here. >> the problem of approximate cause and there are two approximate cause problems here. number one, did violent concussions cause seau's cte and did cte cause seau to kill himself or was it something else? >> very difficult to prove. very good point.
1:48pm
this could go on for years. the medical testimony will have to prove a direct cause, a relationship to junior seau's death a self-inflicted wound and the nfl having some culpability. that will be difficult. they will also look at causation. >> there is one other thing. we are talking suicide here. that is a voluntary act. it's a choice. to claim that someone or something, the nfl in this case is to blame for causing it, that has always been legally problematic in cases hasn't it? >> here's the thing, it is tough. i will give you that. but there is precedent for it. three years ago former chicago bears great dave doersome committed suicide in the exact same way took a gun put it to his chest and shot and killed himself. cte there are studies does cause suicidal tendencies. >> -- (talking over one another)
1:49pm
>> the people who cause suicide are the victims themselves. >> you know what the defense team will do they will look at all of the other factors depression, was there drug and alcohol addiction, financial problems. all of these other things attributed to his death. >> we are out of time. good to see you both. thank you. >> good to see you, greg. >> coming up when the muslim brotherhood took over in egypt it raised alarms in the west and israel. why did the u.s. just send cairo four f-16 fighter jets with plans to send even more in the future? is this really the best strategy right now?
1:50pm
1:51pm
1:52pm
1:53pm
>> growing controversy for egypt. they conformed the delivery of f-16 fighter jets bound for cairo. it is part of a deal back in 2010. that was before the country's revolution and the rise to power of the muslim brotherhood. kt mcfarland is a fox news analyst and she joins us with more.
1:54pm
thank you juror joining us. >> even president obama said the alliance with the u.s. was solid during hmubarek's reign. the deal had already been approved congress could only have been rescinded by president obama. why did he choose to allow it to go through? >> there are three reasons this is a really bad idea. number one, we are having a national debate on guns and we have determined that you don't want to put dangerous weapons in the hands of unstable people. why are we putling it in the hands of unstable country likely egypt right now. it has political and economic chaos. the second reason is we like to get something for when we give foreign aid and foreign military sales. when i worked for henry kissinger it was the beginning of the united states relationship with egypt. we will give you military equipment and aid but we want a peace agreement with israel we want you to keep that. that has kept the peace for 40

years. as you pointed out egypt has maybe reconsidered that. they are calling israel pigs and apes and maybe we should reconsider that deal. finally the problem i have with it, what are they going to use this stuff for? are they going to fire them against their own people against egypt or american ships in the sue ez cannell. i think it's a really bad yaide. >> why did the president allow it to go through? is there any guarantee that he would not use the weapons against israel or his own people? >> here is why the administration says they have to go through with it. they signed a deal a couple years ago. they are findly delivering it even though they may have signed it with the previous leader. the second thing is if we don't go ahead and give the equipment to egypt they are going to be mad at us. maybe it will make them more
